I've been a tutor in Tulsa off and on since 1991, a college chemistry and physics teacher, and a full-time private tutor for over 6 years. As a Tulsa Tutor I've worked with all ages, high school students, college students from TCC, ORU, TU, OU, & OSU, veterans programs, and the Oklahoma voc. The approach I take is to emphasize the basics such as unit conversions, conversion factors, and stoichiometry, because these are truly the heart of chemistry and without this understanding the student will certainly struggle.
I have flowcharts and instructions that help anyone to understand the conversion process from volume to mass, mass to moles, moles to molecules or atoms, etc.
Stoichiometry: Quantitative Information About Chemical Reactions: Mass Relationships in Chemical Reactions: basic stoichiometry, Amounts Tables and Chemical Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactants, Percent Yield, Analysis of Mixtures, Using Stoichiometry to Determine Empirical and Molecular Formulas, Solution Concentration, Preparing Solutions, Serial Dilutions, Calculating and Using p H, Stoichiometry of Reactions in Solution, Titrations, Spectrophotometry.
Principles of Chemical Reactivity: Energy and Chemical Reactions: Energy & Energy Units, Specific Heat Capacity, Changes of State, Enthalpy Changes & heat of reactions, Calorimetry, Hess's Law, and standard enthalpies of formation.
If you can find a face-to-face tutor in your town, I would highly recommend this over online tutoring.
But if you cannot find anyone locally, I'll be happy to help you. I've helped many students in Tulsa pass their classes.Ive also given quite a bit of help to students who are taking online chemistry classes who need complicated material clarified and cannot get that from the website such as Web Assign or Course Compass. I can also help you find a chemistry tutor in your town.Or just click the "Find a Tutor" option at the top of the page.From there I like to build on this solid foundation.I know that many chemistry students who come to me for tutoring are to the point where they are already struggling and are far along in the class, so I try to teach the basics as Im working through the more advanced material such as thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, coordination chemistry, nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry, etc.Atoms, Molecules, and Ions: Atoms: Their Composition and Structure, Isotopes, Isotope Abundance and Atomic Weight, The Periodic Table, Molecular Formulas and Models, Ions and Ion Charges, Ionic Compounds, Naming Ionic Compounds, Coulomb's Law, Naming Binary, Nonmetal Compounds, Atoms and the Mole, Molecules, Compounds, and the Mole, Percent Composition, Empirical and Molecular Formulas, Determining Formulas from Mass Data.Chemical Reactions: Balancing Equations, Chemical Equilibrium, Ions and Molecules in Aqueous Solution, Precipitation Reactions and Net Ionic Equations, Acids and Bases and Their Reactions, Writing Net Ionic Equation, Gas-Forming Reactions, Oxidation Numbers, Oxidation-Reduction Reactions, Types of Reactions in Aqueous Solution.Intermolecular Forces and Liquids: Intermolecular Forces, Liquids, dipole moment, dipole-dipole, Van der Waals forces, London dispersion forces, hydrogen bonding, ion-dipole.The Chemistry of Solids: Metallic and Ionic Solids, Ionic Bonding and Lattice Energy, Other Types of Solids, Physical Properties of Solids, Phase Diagrams and Phase Changes. ): Concentration: Molarity, molality, % mass, mole fraction, ppm, ppb, The Solution Process, Henry's Law, Raoult's Law, Boiling Point Elevation, Freezing Point Depression, Colligative Properties and Molar Mass Determination, Colligative Properties of Ionic Compounds, Osmosis, Colloids.and give students with the homework help they need at the same time.This way they see that chemistry can be useful and interesting.
